This week, the Chinese government issued a blueprint for Chinese soccer reform. The plan focuses on grassroots football, which would begin with a four-tier school league to promote the sport among youngsters. The goal of the reform is to make China rank among the world’s elite football nations. Will the plan be effective, or do these goals remain out of reach? What has prevented China from achieving such goals in the past? Why is China prioritizing this industry, and what can we expect to change? Join us for a chat with Yan Qiang, founder of Score Sport; and in London, Mihir Bose, former BBC sports editor.
